Background of the study
The fast paced development of technology changed everyone’s life. The turnover had been remarkable - better hardware and software are available almost every week. The development plays an essential role in developing the integral skills of certain individuals. Computer-based system are involved to reduce tedious tasks such as evaluating, measuring and recording. Manual computation is very prompt to risk for any circumstances. It is time consuming in terms of computing and recording grades. If some records are lost, they never retrieve it in case of unexpected calamity. (Hirscheein, 2003) Automation is the automatic transfer and positioning of work by machines, or the automatic operation and control of a work process by machines, without significant human intervention or operation, in order to improve performance. Computer software and hardware play an important role in automation systems. Computers control and manage the automation of both physical tasks and analytical tasks.

It is the tract record that recognizes of one student, this maybe use for analyzing of your attitude and values. (Heeres, 2002) Thus, the developers were inspired to proposed a system entitled "Automated Grading System for Saint Columban's College", the proposed system is more accurate because of the level of security that will be implemented in the system and also the data integrity with its database structure by that there will be a reliability, efficient and very easy to use and friendly user than the existing system the institutions have....
